Jeremiah Escapes Death

1 At the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, the king of Judah, this word came from Yahweh, {saying},a 2 "Thus says Yahweh: 'Stand in the courtyard of the house of Yahweh, and you must speak to all the cities of Judah that come to bow in worship [in] the house of Yahweh all the words that I command you to speak to them. You must not omit a word. 3 Perhaps they will listen and turn back each from his evil way, and I will relent of the disaster that I [am] planning to do to them because of their evil deeds. 4 And you shall say to them, "Thus says Yahweh: 'If you will not listen to me, to walk in my law that I have setb {before you},c 5 to listen to the words of my servants the prophets whom I have sent to you, {over and over again},d though you have not listened, 6 then I will make this house like Shiloh, and this city I will make a curse for all the nations of the earth.'" '"
